Chapter 421: I Can Brag About It All the Way Into My Grave With This
– Yanjing, Ye Family –
Elder Ye’s loud laugh filled the whole yard .
At the table, Ye Xiu curiously looked at his grandpa just laughing to his heart’s content, really scared that he would suddenly get a seizure or heart attack or something from laughing so hard .
On the side, Ye Xiu’s dad was also looking at Xu Cheng with a smile . Although Mommy Ye didn’t know what was going on, seeing such a rare occasion where both her husband and father-in-law were laughing like this, she couldn’t help but feel cheerful and asked, “What are you two laughing at?”
“Yeah, I find it odd too . Grandpa, Dad, what’s so funny?” Ye Xiu echoed .
At this moment, Xu Cheng smiled bitterly and said, “The old man’s laughing at me for getting fired . ”
“Grandpa, that’s also why I brought Big Brother Cheng here, he doesn’t even have a military status anymore, what’s going on? You should help him out! He worked so hard to get to where he was in the military, just what did he do that made him lose his rank overnight?” Ye Xiu anxiously said . He only knew about Xu Cheng’s regular ranking in the military but not his identity as the Dragon King .
“That’s because he deserved it!” Old Man Ye glanced at Xu Cheng, “It’s already light enough to just revoke his rank, humph!”
But then, although it sounded like scolding, Grandpa Ye couldn’t hold back the smile on his face . He poured Xu Cheng a glass of liquor and said, “But, I facking love what you did . Here, cheers, drink with me!”
Xu Cheng was extremely flattered as he held the cup with both hands .
On the side, Minister Papa Ye had been eyeing that treasured bottle of liquor of his dad’s for a long time, and he quickly moved up with his cup too, hoping that he could get a taste of it . However, he wouldn’t dare to make the old man pour a glass for him, so he reached his hand over . But who knew that, when he reached his hand over, Grandpa Ye would smack his hand and glared at him, “Did you fight those Wei [email protected] before, Brat?”
Minister Ye felt the awkwardness in the air .
“Look at how big of a coward you are . ” Grandpa Ye’s voice reeked of disdain, and Minister Ye could only smile bitterly and not refute .
His father was a general during the Wei Nation’s invasion of Huaxia, and during that period, he killed many Wei soldiers . Those that survived from that period of time all hated people of the Wei Nation, and whoever could kill more, Grandpa Ye would admire them . He was very forward, and there weren’t many left that were still alive in this world that he would admire .
But who knew, Xu Cheng pulled off such an act that no one even knew what happened, yet the Wei Nation was in chaos and many people died . How could this not make Grandpa Ye happy? In his eyes, that was the same as killing Wei soldiers back during the war .
“I like you, young brat . You have the same taste as me!” Grandpa Ye patted Xu Cheng on the knee and said loudly, “Here, cheers!”
The old man said as he pointed at Minister Ye on the side and lectured, “Don’t be like him, your Uncle Ye . Not to mention killing Wei soldiers, has he even fought any? No! Such an embarrassment to my name! Back then, I would hack from the southwest all the way to the northeast for a whole week, saving countless villages from those Wei Nation dogs! But, the thing I regret the most in my life is to have given birth to this pssy-azz son! Look, even little Xiu is a lot better than his old man . Little Cheng, don’t forget to take care of your little brother Xiu in the future . ”
On the side, Minister Ye just sat there awkwardly, not able to participate in the conversation at all .
Xu Cheng could only sympathize with him . The older-generation guys were indeed very stubborn, but it was the cute and reliable kind of stubborn, and if it weren’t for them, there would not be the peaceful Huaxia today . So, all of these old men that dared to stand up against the war were worthy of respect .
If Grandpa Ye’s appreciation for Xu Cheng in the past was only because they shared similar backgrounds, then now, his appreciation for Xu Cheng now was pure admiration . All in all, the more he looked at Xu Cheng, the more pleased he became .
After a cup of drink went down to his belly, Grandpa Ye laughed openly and asked Xu Cheng, “Did you kill to your heart’s content?”
After Xu Cheng downed the drink too, he clenched his teeth due to the spicy taste and said, “Very!”
“That’s right then! Here, my man, another one!” the old man laughed and said .
“Dad, I think you should stop drinking now, you have to pay attention to your health . ” Minister Ye obviously knew his dad really well, this old man was clearly just using this event as an excuse to drink a little more . It was a known fact that the old man liked to drink and was maybe a little addicted, so it was funny when he used such a grandiose excuse to feed his alcoholism .
It was all good when Minister Ye didn’t speak, but the moment he did, the old man’s temper came and he slapped the table and said, “Can’t you just let me enjoy myself? There’s finally something I can be happy and brag to other people about, can’t you just let me brag to my heart’s content? Let me tell you brat, in the past I didn’t go out and see my old comrades as often because the things I can brag about all go way back in the days! Look at those guys’ sons, all brave and loyal soldiers that can kill and protect, and look at you! If it wasn’t for how the country’s doing well with you at the minister position, I would’ve disowned you a long time ago! Look at Xu Cheng this time, he just made me so content . Yesterday, I went and met up with the old comrades for some activities, and I said to those guys, ‘Yo, you see that? Wei Nation’s in a sh-tstorm right now, who did it? My facking grandson!’ When those guys heard that, they immediately gave me a big thumbs up . Now, I feel so alive that I won’t even breathe heavily after five flights of stairs!”
Xu Cheng: “…”
Grandpa Ye kept on going, “Just this alone, I can brag about it all the way into my grave, do you guys believe it?”
The other three members of the Ye Family immediately nodded . “Yeah . ”
“Old man, say no more, cheers!” Xu Cheng couldn’t bear to listen to this anymore .
At this moment, Minister Ye also praised Xu Cheng, “Little Cheng, good job hiding the merit and your name deep under the surface!”
“Grandpa, Dad, what are you guys talking about?” Ye Xiu really didn’t know what these guys were on about .
“You don’t need to know, knowing it won’t do you any good,” Grandpa Ye smiled and then said to Xu Cheng, “I know you are going back soon, but those old comrades of mine really want to see you . How about this, there’s no better day than today, I will just take you to see them in a bit today . ”
Ye Xiu was completely dumbfounded as his eyes stared wide open upon hearing this .
Not even he received this level of treatment before! As the only grandson of Grandpa Ye, he really hadn’t been brought out this formally to see the older generation’s comrades . It looks like Grandpa Ye really admired Xu Cheng a lot to even give him this kind of treatment .
“Old man, let Ye Xiu go with you…” Xu Cheng quietly chipped in . “I don’t need to go… right?”
Grandpa Ye glared right at him, “Little Xiu doesn’t have to go, but you absolutely do! I already bragged to them about you and they specifically nominated you for me to bring over . Let me tell you, the tempers of those guys are quite like mine, and they really like you . If you don’t go over to see them, then no one in Tianjing will dare to help you travel back to your city . ”
Xu Cheng didn’t know whether he should laugh or cry . “But I really don’t want to hear you guys brag to each other… What else will you guys do whenever you meet?”
At this moment, Minister Ye quietly eyed Xu Cheng and said, “Just go, boy, there’s definitely no harm in you going . ”
